winter ice storm -- midwest
So, you goin'? :-) You're definitely doing some fun exploring since getting out to the PNW! Good for you!
Laloofah -- Well, had plans already to go to the big farmers market in Corvallis, Oregon on Saturday (today). It's huge, beautiful, lots of fun, music around every corner, and lots of folks in a good mood. thanks for the nice comment -- barbara
What a great photo! Love it!
Teresa -- something different for me -- like trying new subjects -- thanks for your nice words -- barbara
P.S. I adore your beautiful sunflower header!!!
Laloofah -- thanks -- I have this thing for sunflowers as I know so many others do also. Your words are music to my ears. -- barbara
Rather too far to come for a taste of beer.
Oh I know John, when you can pick up a cool one near your home and relax in the beauty of your place. -- thanks -- barbara
Could you please send a few of those my way! :) Have a good weekend. Tammy
Tammy -- I would if I could. I enjoy your posts. You have a good weekend too -- thanks --barbara
Great shot, and it reminds me I'm going to be taking a tour tomorrow of one of our new breweries in the Asheville area...it's not open yet, so they call it a hard hat tour (without the hard hats). we are required to wear closed-toe shoes however. Barb
Barb -- I wonder if when they do open they will offer free samples? I didn't attend the drink fest -- I was off to Corvallis, Oregon to enjoy (finally) a beautiful breezy day without the horrid heat we have been having. Have a good time touring -- is it a micro-brew type of place? -- barbara
Looks like a lot of folks are coming for the fun!
Florence -- I guess this is a regular event in the town? I didn't get the history of the drink fest so I can't say anything for positive about it. I usually try to find out a little bit about a subject when I photograph but it was so hot I just took my few photos and left. I really was drawn to the metal tones of the containers and the metal building in the shot -- that is what attracted me -- then I realized the metal drums were kegs of beer :)) thanks -- barbara
I see yesterday's comment didn't reach you so I'll try again today. I merely said that I am often amazed that you see a photographic composition in something I would pay no attention to. These beer kegs would never seem a subject yet they make a good picture and tell us something about the town. You have a wonderful talent.
June -- thanks for your nice comment. This photo was a surprise to me too. I wasn't planning on taking a bunch of beer kegs when I set out to take photos that day. It is just that all the gray metal with contributing accents of blue just kinda formulated the shot and I snapped it. Most photos I take are spontaneous rather than planned. I really like taking photographs of the everyday non-staged world. Again thanks -- barbara
You always get the neatest photos.
Diane -- thanks for the nice comment. Oregon is a beautiful place that offers lots of great opportunities for photographers. -- barbara
Party on, Wayne!
Birdman -- Wayne must be a friend of yours? -- barbara
Beer and the Northwest go together! I always drink too much beer when I'm there.
Hattie -- I always thought that the Northwest was wine country. Now I realize that beer is popular as well -- thanks -- barbara
I'm not a fan of beer kegs, but I like the abstract compostion & the silvry quality of your photo. Did you go to the event?
Rita -- I am not a fan of beer kegs either but I liked the blue and gray colors, the competing squares and circles, and the various heights in the combo I saw -- so click, click -- a photo emerged. I didn't go to the event. I went to the Corvallis Farmers Market instead. thanks for stopping -- barbara
That's a lot of beer to taste! Nce composition!
